These cards are so much more than cards, they are stories, activities, games and stickers. The range includes birthday cards, get well cards,special occasion cards. I especially liked the story cards, little booklet cards of well known nursery rhymes, and...
Toucan Activity Box
A real treasure trove, everything you need in one box
Age range too low - 5 to 8 a better guide
This box of interesting crafty activities is a gem for grandparents who love to make and do with their children. The set comes in a recyclable box and has a treasure trove of lovely things inside. The theme in the one I received is birds. There is an attractive story book called Dazzle Duckling and four projects to make. The first is a bird feeder constructed from lolly sticks, pipe cleaners and a little pack of bird seed. The second is a toucan family, again, everything is supplied including polystyrene eggs, cut-out papers, eyes and feathers. The third a bird glider assembled from a kit and finally there is a peacock collage which requires good scissor skills and a deft hand with the glitter and glue. In addition to these there are colouring pencils and pictures to colour in and a ‘How to Draw Bird Diagrams’. The beauty of this box is that it contains everything that is needed to complete these items, there is no need to visit hobby shops. The box is available by subscription at £19.95 a month or £16.95 a month for twelve months. It’s very good value, however I do think that the suggested age range is rather too young and I would think that five to eight is a better guide if you want the child to be involved rather than just having a minimal input.
